This is a tarpon hunter's worst nightmare.
There's not much you can do when a rogue shark attacks a played-out tarpon. As this video shows, when a giant hammerhead wants to eat, there's not a lot that can stop it.
These anglers have to look away as this predator demolishes a beautiful tarpon on the other end of the line.
I think we can all safely say that grabbing a hammerhead by the dorsal fin might not be the best idea.
In any event the shark got what it wanted, as they usually do!
